The Perfect Holiday Appetizer – Cheesy Garlic Herb Butter Pull Apart Bread

When I think of the holidays, I think of comfort food.

And is there anything more comforting than cheese, garlic, herb butter, and bread? I don’t think so!

This appetizer is so incredibly easy. You’ll start by cutting a crusty loaf of bread in 1 inch squares. I recommend using a sourdough or Italian loaf, but any type of bread will do.

You want to cut 3/4 of the way down the bread, not all the way through it. Then, you’ll stuff with herbed garlic butter and cheese. (P.S. if you hate chopping garlic, get a garlic press! I have this one that works great. Check it out on Amazon!)

Finally, wrap the loaf in foil, and bake! It’s that easy.

This is a great appetizer for any size gathering, it’ll always be a hit!
